Celebrate Emerging Leaders

Celebrate Emerging Leaders 4

May 25, 2023 • Tacoma, WA

Come celebrate with us as we lift up diverse young leaders!  Guests will dance to local music, take part in a silent auction, enjoy a thoughtful dinner program, and hear from our current scholars and interns.

Degrees of Change supports young people through our Act Six and Seed Careers programs because we are passionate about building more vibrant, equitable communities for a just future. Our partners and supporters are critical to advance our mission of preparing homegrown leaders for college and career success.

This event is more than a fundraiser. It is an opportunity to rally together as a community around future generations of young leaders. Be a part of change. Register today and help us continue our important and transformational work.
